  • This lovely volume provides a broad and rich source of blessings, many of which have never before been published. There are blessings for the seasons; for minor seasonal events like Mothering Sunday and Harvest, and for special events, like school and pet services, weddings, and the dedication of homes and church premises. A section of biblical exhortations, ascriptions and doxologies is also included.

    Those who would like to write their own blessings for public use will find guidance in the helpful introduction, which looks at the theology and nature of a blessing and its constituent parts.

    A well-farmed act of worship needs to come to a fitting conclusion in which people are reminded of what they have been reflecting upon and refreshed in their commitment, as they ask Gods help in taking the next steps. This fine collection brings together new texts with familiar ones and also includes an excellent selection. of biblical passages with which to draw a service to a conclusion. It will be of great use to worship leaders in all the Christian traditions and it is a pleasure to congratulate Nick and Alan on this gift to the whole Church.
